Agro and Food Processing Food Processing AF-15 Egg Powder – Value added poultry product

Project Description
The proposed project envisages setting up of an egg powder unit. Eggs are dried to preserve the surplus eggs to avoid spoilage. Drying of eggs is an economical method of preservation. The dried egg powder can be stored and transported without refrigeration at room temperature. The product is stable and has a long shelf life. In the drying process, the bulk and weight of raw eggs are reduced. This results in less transportation cost and sufficient supplies to remote places with convenience. Product Application Egg powder is used in fast food preparations, ice-creams, cakes, cookies, noodles, doughnut etc. In fact it can replace the use of fresh eggs in these food items, which would offer convenience and ease of handling as against shell eggs. Apart from whole egg powder, yolk powder and Albumen flakes can also be made. Albumen flakes are free from cholesterol and have also application in printing and other natural protein applications.

Market & Growth Drivers
   World egg production in the year 2005 was estimated at 60 million metric ton. India ranks fifth after USA, with a production of nearly 2.5 million metric tons of eggs in 2005. The production cost of eggs in India is lowest in the world. The cost for producing one egg amounts to INR 1.11 (US$ 2.55). The estimated domestic demand of Egg Powder is around 1000 MT, which is largely consumed by Armed Forces and bakery industry. However, with increased availability of Egg Powder, the household demand is expected to grow.   Egg powder has an excellent export potential in countries like Germany, Austria, The Netherlands and Republic of Korea. Ovobel Foods limited and SKM Egg products Exports (India) Limited are potential players in Indian market. Ovobel Foods Limited is a company in collaboration with Ovobel N.V, Belgium. SKM Egg Products based at Tamilnadu process around 1.2 million eggs every day. Growth Drivers  Changing food habits have increased egg and egg products consumption in India, leading to an increase in the domestic market for both. This will be further increased in coming period as egg is the cheapest source of protein for the masses and its consumption has become common.  Increasing number of nuclear families in India, particularly in urban and semi urban areas, and increasing number of working women in the country has increased demand of Egg powder.



but owing to the difference in the production and consumption.  Nearness to Gulf and Far East Asian countries. the mixture is filtered and stored in storage tanks at about 4 C and then it is taken to tabular heater. which is then packed in polylined boxes. Therefore it is quite logical to process eggs in surplus areas and at the time of glut.Project Profile on Egg Powder – Value added poultry product Mott MacDonald iNDEXTb Why Gujarat?  Availability of raw material (Gujarat’s average egg production is approximately 400 million eggs per year) in the state.

After removal of shells.  There is a regional and seasonal imbalance of demand and production of eggs. which offers good opportunities for development of domestic as well as export market. A typical manufacturing process flow is shown below: o o Eggs Breaking Shell Shell Dryer Dried Shell Packing & Storage Grit Whole Egg Filtering Cooling (PHE) Liquid Whole Egg Holding Spray Drying Whole Egg Powder Packing Storage below 20oC Storage at Ambient Temp. Technology / Process Manufacture of dried egg powder starts with breaking of eggs and removing egg-shells. the option of processing is worth exploring. The average yield is around 80%.
